Renewed call for information into 1982 Saskatoon cold case

Greg Rayfuse died walking home 41 years ago, police say.

SASKATOON – A renewed plea for information regarding a 41-year-old cold case seeks to answer what happened to Greg Rayfuse.

Around 1 a.m. on Sept. 5, 1982, Rayfuse, then 26, was found injured on the 500 block of Saskatchewan Crescent. Investigation by police discovered he had attended a house party the day previous on the 800 block of Avenue J South.

"He left the party to walk home and is believed to have been assaulted between 11:30 p.m., Sept. 4 and 12:30 a.m. Sept. 5," said SPS in a media release. "An autopsy determined he died of significant blunt force trauma to the head."

No suspects have been arrested in Rayfuse's murder, but police believe there are people out there with information that could help solve the case. The investigation in this historical homicide remains open, and anyone with information can contact SPS at (306) 975-8300 or submit a tip anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
